when a european country went through a crisis why were its politicians worried about toilet paper in latin america. i flew to caracas to find out. during the 11 hour flight i read all sorts of articles warning me that caracas is one of the most dangerous cities in the world. if i wasn't murdered as soon as i got off the plane i'd be kidnapped or mugged or die of hunger or disease. will rot in prison. venezuela's capital is indeed amongst the most dangerous cities but so are dozens
of cities in mexico brazil lo columbia. however the people there do have fun like we do they exercise much like us. children eat ice cream and some women carry refrigerators for some reason. surprisingly nobody trying to kill kidnap or imprison me when i arrived. during those 1st few hours i sold venezuela and fallen victim to the biggest propaganda plot of the 21st century. not the only thing keeping out because i wanted to see. life in the barrios the
slums of caracas gatecrash rich weddings i am i wanted to be to young people artists and workers see what they do for fun what they eat how they vote what newspapers they read their favorite hobbies. until we got hit by a taxi and we were left in the middle of the street. the police who we hadn't called arrived within minutes. the ambulance that we did call never appeared. so i went off to explore all venezuela's public health care system . and found a doctor right away and most of the public hospitals i visited were more than decent. and some clinics medical care was offered for free by cuban doctors who
were considered some of the best in latin america. however most hospitals lacked one essential element. patients. as to what a medicine was there's no point in going. spare parts for the x. ray machines were missing to. find those i had to go to a private hospital. and i stumbled on the 1st proof that socialism had failed in venezuela. the moment. i had. them on with. as one of venezuela's most eminent economists. she's never hidden her support for
independent expert. he just returned from caracas. seems to have a problem with the humanitarian crisis. that is. art said. you used the term humanitarian crisis. a pretext to. humanitarian intervention. in libya. at the same time regime change and overthrow the american military. with food for everybody is that it correct but the humanitarian aid would have to be secured by guys with guns. there are certain items that
are missing. because production. trade distribution is entirely in private hands it is not direct so if you have a considerable portion of the. wealth. in this position. that does not want to cooperate with the government you are going to have a scar city and you're going to have delays in distribution that cetera et cetera so i. do. see.
this out of the. according to the central bank of venezuela products were missing before the constitutional referendum and regional elections of 2007. before the presidential election of 2012 and off to chavez's death that again led to elections. american sanctions will soon be added to this artificial scarcity making the situation even worse. brought director of the c.p.r. in washington followed. all economic development he believes that america's sanctions are killing people in venezuela.
when obama 1st imposed these sanctions on individuals because they violate so many international conventions he had to declare that venezuela poses an extraordinary and unusual threat to the security of the united states which is of course ridiculous and so this is a very aggressive thing trumpet taking a big step further and really did make it nearly impossible for the venezuelan economy recover temperamental that it will kill for that ca to know he needs them from being a woman to have some if you see a. b. and he says yeah look i'm with me coming behind me but i limp at that still lived all the facets illness it really is sad that they claim that. it's under less from them i think i said in that message that but in superman to conduct album.
they're not interested in knowing why there is a problem so just to be sure why there are certain medicines are not available they don't tell you for instance that although venezuela has the money to buy medicines and tries to buy these medicines often enough the countries either refuse to deal with venezuela or do not deliver. we had in the month of november the crisis. in the province. and. they couldn't get that. they had to. india.
business. today using financial issues. special coverage. we are not to shy to talk about our ambition to turn chinese navy into a blue water navy actually we have but it clear that if by mid a century p.-l. a will be developed hopefully into a world class military that would even crude 1st the class the chinese navy. there is a cyclical nature to things there is to globalization there's globalization there is lowering interest rates there is rising interest rates so when the interest rates rise hit the impact it is said will be instantaneous death.
lake says and see it forms part of a high altitude nature reserve. it's one of the famous chito room indonesia's principal waterway starts its journey. but it can be summed up to the top of my got a septic tank stop. it runs 300 kilometers from source to mouth and there are over $200.00 industrial facilities ranged along as bangs. i'm out on your muscle. to do 3 things. i might get out of them and to be in. the room here again scuba 4000 rice fields and supplies drinking water to 25000000 people. that will pull

a historic day for us in america. for the white house it was a mistake by the american ambassador in santiago edward gorey. thank you well he was going to. let me just say oh you mean you're going to tell you know i'm going to. die and he was elected i said that it was a grave and very serious defeat for the united states we knew that although i would act in what appeared to be a legal and constitutional manner it would be designed as a class warfare to eliminate the middle class opposition the bourgeois it would be a class war approach. top secret sensitive eyes only.
nixon already in september called in henry kissinger to tell him that it would not be tolerated that in latin america an alternative economic and social system could take hold and therefore the policy would be to make the chilean economy scream. nixon gives orders that they make the chilean economy scream and cia director richard helms writes it down. they hinted at tagging. in 4th down last.
goal. but i guess i've. got to. go. in venezuela's case the media attacks will be based on a well used recipe. everyone has to be convinced the. dictator is even when they held elections. in the 2 decades of the revolution. at least 25 elections were held and accredited by independent experts like the. over 92 elections men are monitored i would say that the election process in voters' where is the best in the world. where all the electoral process is
legal and democratic. and 2015 party loses the parliamentary election and the right wing opposition wins in the national assembly. to believe the country is paralyzed as m.p.'s hinder legislative work and rejects supremes court rulings. responds with a football. will lose. its. instead of waiting for the hand of god as his friend would advise changes field in the middle of the game. will be holds a referendum on the formation of a constitutional assembly that would remove the powers of the national assembly
controlled by his opponents find. a constitutional move absolutely. the opposition had twice considered using the same procedure to remove chavez from office in 2007. in 2016. before the government. was a decision ethical. i may not be qualified to say. in my country as well as in italy the banker was appointed prime minister. the referendum was ignored. in europe we cancelled a total of 5 referendums because the citizens hadn't voted as the e.u. wanted them to.
was those decisions constitutional maybe they were but also ethical and democratic . in venezuela after the 2015 crisis the part of the right wing opposition started boycotting elections. they asked the un not to send experts who could determine whether fraud had been attempted. democracy in venezuela goes into turmoil this is the government solely responsible or is it also the ghost of the 2002 coup. several coup instigators will never go to prison and will form the hard core of the
right wing opposition. it's interesting that. many of the opposition politicians today in venezuela were involved in some way or another in the coup d'etat of april. 2002. some of those politicians will continue to receive funding from american organizations like the ne d. . of congress dole is to venezuela. when the political crisis hit the streets many politicians exploited public
frustration and transformed caracas into a battlefield. thoughts of the opposition resorted to extreme violence. he had to get off you had a bad. mistake mechanism responded cruelly and indiscriminately dozens were killed on both sides and many ended up in prison. when independent un experts alfred desireless visited caracas. he persuaded the government to release 80 prisoners are. just back he insists though that some should be in prison and should be considered political prisoners.
on the subject of political prisoners he said we should look at europe as well. they are 4 persons. got a lot of politicians who are. jail. now these 4. politicians are clearly political prisoners. whereas in venezuela many of the detainees were detained because acts of violence. they were. detained because they were just expressing their. desire to be independent.
to be sure that they're all political prisoners in spain i went to barcelona to visit a fellow journalist. public t.v. carlos put outs from which. he explained that even if the political prisoners he couldn't say so. at least not on a. big. and he called. who said what kinds of words we can use when we speak about people that are in prison. just
say we cannot use. the terms political prisoners for example. because i honestly couldn't believe that in a european country a judge could decide what words a journalist could use. i stayed to watch the broadcast and i heard a breaking story. but i'm not going to. come out of any love out. there. in she stayed. as joe di sanchez was not allowed to speak to journalists i left the studio and went to meet his wife.
